for his part, laudermill zalinski, has travelled to germany for the munich security conference. he says his country does not respond to provocations, and has called for peace through diplomacy. let's go live now to kiev, ukraine's capital. i'll just here is andrew sentences to andrew. how do people feel about the fact of a lot of mia zelinski has left the country and gone to munich for this conference? will you think they'd be quite worried, considering the situation has become all the more critical in the past 24 hours and indeed western diplomats were uneasy to hear the president zalinski would be flying to munich to address delegates or however, the general feeling here is very much one that there, we assured that the president is going out on to the international stage to put across his message. and you can be certain that message will be defiant towards the russians. he will stand his ground and he will cool for diplomacy,
5:03 pm
like so many other leaders, but he won't be predicting and outright all in invasion of his country no far from it's about. the situation here though is people feel that what is going on in the east, in the conflict area where there's been fighting for the past 8 years, is disturbing and could be the 4 runner to an invasion. and that is a, that is witty, causing some ship is in many places. the foreign minister to metro caliber is also in munich, and he's going to fly on to brussels and from that to the united states. so those are the actions of somebody who expects the invasion to happen within a matter of hours old days. and so we have a situation now where by there is anees, there is more of more concern, particularly in the east, in the dumbass region. i want slideshow hearing from the breakaway regions of
5:04 pm
ukraine. of a shilling overnight is, is fighting on going the it certainly is there are loads, but there are certainly a tax on going. the casualty rates certainly isn't high. there is one dead ukrainian soldier civilians are however, are really worried. this has been the worst shelling for many years. in fact, the worst since 2015 by all accounts. and that was when the minsk records they, the failed minsk records were brought in a ceasefire, which didn't last very long on that cease fire, a heavy weaponry is banned and that still supposed to be in place. however, both sides have heavy weaponry and we're hearing that long range artillery is being used, which can shells that can travel up to 11 kilometers. that is a distance that goes into areas that are lots of civilians,
5:05 pm
not by no means a densely populated, but places that are really in danger. and the worry is that on the ukraine side that people aren't being evacuated. unlike the in the break away republics. and so therefore, there is a level of concern there. as far as those breakaway republics concerned, i'm the leader of the of the finance republic than his sir. a pavilion. he didn't make the announcement up calling for people to be evacuated or dramatic a sequence of events. if you watch the pictures on a friday now close examination of the video because he released a video at the meta data shows that that video was 2 days old. that it was filmed on february 16th. there's no disputing that so and indicates that the things are being staged and an indicator which backs up that the, the fear that this is going to be at. there's going to be more and more
5:06 pm
a false flag. incidence of that sir, situations whereby they could be the pre runa, are to more serious, but reaction. and there is concern that that's going to happen as it was entered sentence, reporting live there from ukraine's capital care. any thanks and aid to andrew, a diplomatic editor james base has spoken with nato secretary general at the munich security conference. he asked against open book, what a war in ukraine would look like. it will be around us and we still also for many, many lives and to have something like this in europe. it's hard to imagine, but we are closer to that. now don't be in any time since day at least in the cold war because i never seen such a concentration of chips and forces on such or read this with all. busy the different elements in place, everything from, of course a high end weapon system, so to feel hospitals, so to logistics,
5:07 pm
to command control. so russia on launch attack with hardly any warning time and that is really concerning. but again, it is possible for russia to change mind on to, to step back from the bank. we heard from the us, vice president as well. i'm sure you were listening to her speech. she talked about those sanctions that everyone here is talking about. the strongest sanctions yet on russia, but she also talked about some of the quote to further reinforcement of the eastern flank. so the u. s. planning to send more forces will other nato allies also be sending more forces? yes, as well. drive seen is that the ne dollars do not to states, but those are all the, it was all the, the increase their presence in the eastern part of the alliance. germany in, for instance, how's increased? it's suppressed. yes. but if their invasion, we are, but then, then we are ready to further strengthen our presence. is to make sure that there is no room for misunderstanding. no room for miscalculation about naples readiness to
5:08 pm
protect and defend all new dollars. and that's the best way to prevent an attack on and in a to our country. ukraine is highly valued. partner, we support them for an a 2 hours. we provide iron clad security. again, this is toss jabari and moscow has more on rushes, military exercises disclose. of course, a massive exercise trying to test the country's air defense systems, as well as the a nuclear capable missile systems that this country has. this was an event that is usually is scheduled for the month of october in russia for their country's defense systems to be tested when that the nuclear capable ones specifically. but this year they decided that they will move it up to february. and of course, we saw the commander in chief, that is the country's president vladimir putin, in a what was described as a situation center i overseeing the whole thing as well as giving his go ahead to
5:09 pm
start the drills. he was joined by alexander lucas shinkel day president of bella bruce, who was invited by putin to oversee this a drills and according to the officials that were in charge of the different aspects of these exercises, all the missiles ahead, their intended target. and of course, i think the most important point was that these drills took place almost simultaneously to the u. s. vice president taking center stage at the munich security conference. yet again, vladimir putin trying to show his military strength when it comes to this country and been seeing as him trying to show the world of rushes, military prowess, of course. and that is really something that he has seemed to have achieved. as we saw that the center of topic of conversation at the security conference in munich by the world leaders was the ongoing tension between russia and ukraine. stanislaus

room for resolution of these conflict means agreement, but nobody, nobody in ukraine going to fall d. c. greener because these are not going to be inches away with all the russia an aggressor, but no. any evidence of show stable freshman concentration of russian troops along the border with you? again, this is an answer for the support of your brain, aggression statements with no one evidence, no one plans to do something. and last night started to attention. we started last night. yes. show that it was made from ukrainian side. previously yuki in the united states. we do the se observers just in order to to come are not to color the real source of the sentient
